The Best and Worst in the Year of Media

From The Poynter Report with Tom Jones:

Media persons of the year

Back on Feb. 25 of this year, here’s what I wrote for my Poynter Report newsletter: “As loud explosions from Russian artillery shells and missiles rattled the outskirts of Kharkiv, Ukraine, unnerved residents of the country’s second-largest city desperately sought shelter. Hundreds, perhaps thousands, scampered and crammed into the safest place they could find: underground in a railway station. And right there in the middle of it was CNN’s Clarissa Ward, interviewing an anxious mother with her 7-year-old son and 3-year-old daughter clinging to her sides.” The photo at the top of the newsletter shows her reporting that day.
